and more headroom for performance tuning.

Both models use the PCI-Express Gen2 interface, and feature dual connectors for
CrossFireX cables, allowing two or more cards to be used together on a
CrossFireX compatible mainboard for even higher graphics performance. Both are
based on the powerful new graphics architectures from the ATI division of AMD,
incorporating 800 process units, improved memory management architecture and an
upgraded hardware video decoder.

All SAPPHIRE graphics cards in the HD 4800 series incorporate the latest ATI
Avivo™ HD Technology for enhanced Video display and feature a new generation
built in hardware UVD (Unified Video decoder) considerably reducing CPU load and
delivering smooth decoding of Blu-ray™ and HD DVD content for both VC-1 and
H.264 codecs, as well as Mpeg files. In addition to two, dual-link DVI outputs,
and TV-Out, a dedicated HDMI adaptor delivers both audio and video output on a
single cable for direct connection to an HDMI ready display.

SAPPHIRE HD 4800 series graphics cards are Microsoft Windows Vista™ Premium
certified and supported by the ATI Catalyst® suite of software, ensuring
customers have ongoing access to software updates for performance, stability and
added features. Like the previous generation, these cards support DirectX10.1
for enhanced rendering performance and lighting effects.
